Literally the best Dead jam ever
Go to "That's It For the Other One." Skip ahead to 7:00.
That is all.

One of my favorites! And one of the best recordings out there. The Wharf Rat isn't on my cassette tape from long ago, so I was surprised to hear it on my beloved archive.org.

News of the closing of the Filmore East
The vocals are deep and very rich.
Might be the strongest era for ensemble singing.
The harmonies here are INCREDIBLE.
The Grateful Dead in all their glory.
If you have the time to kick back and take this in
you will certainly be much the better for it.
"Tell me all that you know
I'll show you snow and rain"
The tune selection is very inspired.
Many strong performances of stand alone material
and then the That's it for the Other One and everything from Dark Star on is nicely jammed.
Throw in a little TC with trippy keys.
The interview that follows the music probably took place before these shows.
It gives some insight to the gravity
of the music here.
After listening to Uncle Bobo
I changed my Title of review
from 'Party at the Filmore'
to 'News of the Closing of the Filmore'.
This interview is a testament to Bill Graham
and his integrity.
In the 1980's I remember driving past the Filmore East and it was still shuttered from 1971.
